Three of the four District of Columbia teens who escaped from a private treatment facility in South Carolina have been apprehended, police said.

Summerville Police Sgt. Cassandra Williams said the teens were located Thursday morning and are being returned to the Palmetto Summerville Behavioral Health Center.

Williams said four teens escaped from the facility at about 6 p.m. Wednesday. Their names have not been released, but Williams said their ages range from 17 to 19 years old.

The D.C. Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services said the center is a placement facility for adolescent males with sexually aggressive behaviors, substance abuse problems and psychiatric, behavioral or conduct issues.

Its website said Palmetto Behavioral Health is operated by a subsidiary of Universal Health Services, Inc., a hospital management company.
